Honours research

The aim of my honours research is to investigate how the brain constructs a coherent representation of the visual world across eye movements. Specifically, I aim to determine how visual perception is influenced by the planning and execution of each eye movement by having participants complete a visual discrimination task on a computer display while they simultaneously make goal directed eye movements. Changes in visual sensitivity that systematically depend on the spatial and temporal dynamics of eye movements can reveal how a representation of the visual world is updated every time the eyes move.
